Looking for a caring, compassionate, skilled & experienced caregiver for my 88y/o mother who has fallen 4 times since March, has fractured her pelvis, broken her shoulder & has dementia. She is currently rehabbing in a facility & is walking great with a walker in spite of her fractures, but will continue to need help with stability. Does not complain of any pain. Needs help with daily care & meal prep. Will need a person who has experience with dementia & realizes her mood can change from being the sweetest lady on the planet to very uncooperative w/o notice.
Assist with cleaning or showering & bathroom needs in the morning when she awakens (whatever is needed), breakfast, and help her to the den or her recliner.
Has to be constantly reminded not to get up without help. Likes to read magazines, her cellphone & watch TV.
Reading magazines, watching TV; spending time with family & having friends visit.
Would need to have patience & experience with dementia patients.
You would need dependable transportation. No public transit access.
